Deserted for 50 years, this gigantic station will soon reopen

Erected in 1928 in the Pyrenees, Canfranc was the second largest station in Europe. But no train has been on it since 1970. Fortunately, volunteers want to give it new life.

It was to be the Eurotunnel of the Pyrenees. A railroad track connecting the province of Aragon to France, the Franco-Spanish hyphen that it took four years to build. Time took it's toll, and so did wars, a derailment, and the destruction of a bridge.

Isolated and unused for 50 years, the tourist attraction will be quite the destination for those who've been everywhere and seen everything.
